Following this methodology, United Way Avenues of Change, the neighbourhood’s public partners, community agencies and families with young children:
- Work together towards a common goal
- Develop shared, highly collaborative and achievable Action Strategies that respond to the community’s unique needs, and
- Look at policies and service delivery in a way that makes the most sense for families with young children in that area.
We’ve already seen our collective impact result in significant reductions on childhood vulnerability in some of our United Way Avenues of Change locations, but even where we haven’t yet been able to move the dial, we’ve gained some incredibly valuable insights that will help inform both existing as well as upcoming sites.
